If you are looking for a holiday hotel, apartment or Corralejo holiday villa, the following information may help by giving you an overview of the resort and the surrounding area.
A flavour of old Spain can be experienced on your holiday to Corralejo [a delightful former fishing village] which is now the island’s main resort. Just 45 minutes from the airport, life bustles around the port area, where the ferry departs daily to Lanzarote and boats sail to the Isla de los Lobos. The charming old centre of Corralejo is quiet by day but atmospheric by night.
Experience the island’s magic by dining in the old square, known as “Music Square” where local musicians provide live music and song. It is also very much a developing resort with new hotels and apartments opening each year, alongside improvements to the local amenities, pavements and roads. Whilst many are content to laze around their pool on their holidays to Corralejo, the lure of the wild, untamed landscapes tempts many others to trek out to the nearby sandy beaches and dunes.
The major attraction on your Corralejo holidays will be the 7 broad miles of fine, golden sand with some smaller bays, starting 2 miles outside town; the waters are clear and an intense shade of blue. They are, however, affected by currents and are therefore unsuitable for small children. The town beaches are somewhat more sheltered and provide safer areas for children; most of these, however, have a band of volcanic rock along the waterline. There are dunes [which are a protected nature reserve] just behind Corralejo are the island’s most impressive and are reminiscent of a miniature Sahara.
Corralejo is located on the north tip of the island, facing the little islet of Los Lobos. 23 miles north of the capital, Puerto del Rosario and 26 miles north of the airport.
The more modern facility consists of a marina for pleasure craft and room for the ferry services to Lanzarote and Lobos, a small island that is a 15 minute ferry ride from Fuerteventura. There are various trips aimed at those on holiday that run from the harbour, and bookings for these can be made at one of the booths dotted about the area.
Eating out in Corralejo
There is a good choice of restaurants and some friendly bars; fresh fish is the speciality.
Shopping in Corralejo
